Sweet apricots filled with creamy goat cheese and wrapped in salty bacon. A few minutes in the oven and you've got this great snack.
On New Year's Eve we come together with our friends and laugh and eat small appetizers, which everybody takes a long. Our tastebuds are used those evenings, with a lot of succesful recipes. And therefor the coming couple of days small appetizers. Ideal to eat on New Year's Eve (or on any time of the year). And starting with: filled dried apricots with goat cheese.
- you want this snack juicy and not dry and burned, you soak the apricots in hot water.
- you want to make this dish in advance, you put the stuffed apricots in the baking dish and cover the baking dish with plastic foil. Put in the refrigerator until you bake it. You can make it up to one day in advance;
- the apricots are very hot, serve it with a stick (believe me that's better for your fingertips)
It's a good taste!
